Following the Ankiv Baisoya fake degree row, the High Court on Tuesday announced the final verdict directing Shakti Singh to take up the post of DUSU President.Shakti earlier held the post of the DUSU Vice-President.
“The university had been delaying the decision for no reason since long. This comes after we created pressure upon the authorities. We still have many demands in line including demands for specially-abled students, fee reduction in the revaluation, filling posts of DU administration which has caused problems for students amongst others. If the university does not act upon these demands in the future, we would call a massive protest and would even demand the resignation of the Vice Chancellor,” said in a statement ABVP’s State Secretary Siddharth Yadav.
The DUSU elections held in September last year came into question when NSUI claimed Ankiv Baisoya of using fake degree to get admission and then contesting elections. The Delhi University canceled the admission of Baisoya on 14th November 2018 after receiving the confirmation from Thiruvalluvar University on Ankiv’s degree.
